Lions Eye Donation Service

About our research

For 30 years, the Lions Eye Donation Service (LEDS) has restored the vision of thousands of Australians and New Zealanders, through the gift of end-of-life eye donations from generous Victorians and their families. These donations have provided sight-restoring transplants to corneal and glaucoma patients, and those with eye injuries. LEDS also allocates eye tissue for research and training which helps vision researchers at CERA and beyond understand the eye and eye conditions, and develop new treatments and future solutions.
